Weitzman displays an obvious respect for his subject, and he deftly handles the more technical details of ironworking. Abundant archival photos and primary-source quotes lend realism and drama to the text. [A] winning blend of architectural history, anthropology, and American Indian achievement.

Pharaoh's Boat

Houghton Mifflin, Spring, 2009

PHARAOH'S BOAT is an immensely gratifying book as skillfully crafted and assembled as its subject. In this beautifully written and illustrated account, David Weitzman weaves past and present into a truly satisfying story of technology and discovery, scholarship and craft. While much of the art is done in the familiarly flat Egyptian style, the journey on which it takes us is absolutely four dimensional.

Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 2005

Thrashin’ Time: Harvest Days in the Dakotas

David R. Godine, 1990, 2000

Mr. Weitzman’s glorious illustrations . . . are as massive as the draft horses and the machines they depict, as delicate a stalks of wheat . . . They are the kind of illustrations in which the reader gets lost. With his text, Mr. Weitzman’s illustrations bring back a world.
